Security Workshop

  • Date: Sunday, 13 March 2016
  • Venue: Conference Room 1, BHSS, Academia Sinica


We will again be holding a full-day security workshop before the start of ISGC 2016. The focus this year will be incident response and federated identity management. The event is aimed at security officers, site managers and anyone interested in the security and management of federated infrastructures. The event will consist of lectures and training together with a hands-on exercise. Topics covered will include the mechanics of federation, attack vectors and threats in federated environments, and communications in incident response. The exercise will role-play incident response in a federated environment.
